Comments : These are very cool little sculpins! Although you can not readily tell from this picture, they sport bright orange and blue coloration is an wild zebra-like design. Their coloration lets them blend in very well along life encrusted rocks, and often you do not see them until they move. They are relatively timid and do not like having a macro frame put around them, making photographing them difficult.
